Strength in pigments

Nowadays, the main task of interior paints is not limited to decoration only. We expect them to facilitate the finishing works and to be friendly for the occupants. Parameters which characterize a good interior paint are: ease of application, resistance to washing and scrubbing, hypoallergenicity and no harmless influence on the environment. All these conditions are met by the Fox Dekorator Color Matt latex paint.

Over the years, manufacturers made significant efforts in order to improve properties of dyed interior paints. They have been expected to be easy to apply and spread, well coating, easy to keep clean with possibility of surface washing.

Latex paints

When latex paint appeared on the US market in the middle of the 20th century, it was a huge sensation. They proved to be comfortable in application, fast drying and resistant to repeated washing. In addition, they did not contain lead. Because of all these properties they were considered as perfect paints. Up till now they remain the most obvious choice of those who require the highest quality and flawless surface appearance.

New possibilities

Since then, the composition of the dispersions, on which the paints called “latex” were based, has changed significantly. Initially, they were actually dispersions of raw rubber, linseed oil or even casein. Over time, the manufacturers noticed that synthetic equivalents of natural binders show better properties, so they began to use more innovative technologies.

The latest technology and richness of design

ATLAS has also used the new opportunities available at the production of paints and has recently expanded the range of products offered within the Fox Dekorator brand with a latex interior paint – COLOR MATT. It is available in 224 colors in accordance to original FOX Colour Scheme.

Method of use

The paint should be applied upon prepared and stabilized substrate with a thin and uniform coat. Painting can be done with a roller, a brush or a sprayer. The second coat is applied when the previous one dries completely (i.e. after minimum 2 hours, depending on the substrate, temperature and relative air humidity). One must keep the same application direction within a single coat. Paint application must be done continuously, without breaks. The results will be outstanding!
